Okay, so I'm watching the last hour of Raw right now.

Brodus Clay for WWE Champ, imo. This **** is hilarious.

lol wat

Were there modern wrestlers around before the modern era, then?

I get your point though, pretty sure by the end of his career he will be approaching GOAT status. He's got another 2/3 WWE title runs in him imo, and a hell of a lot of young talents to put over.

You could be right about it. It could be how they're turning him heel for The Rock.

As a guy who stands by the D.A.R.E. pledge to resist drugs and alcohol he signed in the fourth grade, I don’t have a lot of tolerance for people who get high profile, high paying jobs and f**k them up by smoking pot. Whether or not it should be legalized or whether it’s “good” or “bad” is irrelevant — if the company that pays you 400K to do what you love to do for a living says “hey, you can keep doing this for a living, just don’t do these drugs” I have absolutely no f**king sympathy for you when you get caught.
I hope he is at least kidding about the D.A.R.E. part. One of the most worthless piece of **** "organizations" ever?

I am willing to make certain allowances. The guy is a fruity ass vegan ffs, he's not there to demonstrate good life choices, just amusing observations about wrestling.

While I agree with the anti-D.A.R.E. stuff and favor legalizing weed, I think his point is well-taken that when you choose to sign up to work for an employer you follow their rules or GTFO if you're caught doing otherwise.

fair enough. but seriously D.A.R.E. is rofl.

and i agree partially with LKJ about the vegan stuff. it doesn't make me want to close the article, but seriously no one ****ing cares Brandon and we all get it. we all know vegan hipster types and isn't that like half of everyone who lives in Austin anyway? also as dumb as the pink shirt jokes were comparing Punk to Michael Cole literally calling Josh Matthews a ****** is kind of lame. and isn't he sort of saying that non-vegans/smokers are worse than he is at life? seems like a double standard.

agreed. i mean i gave up that stuff for work purposes and i am fine with it and get it. just feels like he is patronizing about all life-choices that are not his exact life-choices.

ALL THAT BEING SAID. it was indeed a good B&W and i still look forward to reading it every week.

But yes his articles are good in spite of that and the best part is that he completely sees angles on the show that I would have never thought of.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

Thinking about it a little more the stuff with Ryder doesn't make any sense. Bryan's title win over Henry was overturned when it turned out he wasn't cleared to wrestle and the belt was returned to Mark by Teddy Long. But now it doesn't work that way anymore? Teddy Long was in the building ffs, he could have reminded Johnny Ace that those are the rules or something. I mean I am fine with Ryder being buried and not being any kind of champion ever again but lol continuity. I guess I am the only person paying attention to these things though.

I don't think this is an inconsistency actually. This is just Johnny Ace being heelish. Teddy is a face so he enforces the rule. Ace is a heel so he goes "Whoops, my mistake. Congratulations on your new championship, Swagger."

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

I am not a fan of weed or "hard drugs". I have lots of friends that smoke weed, and although I don't get high and mighty about my distaste for it, I don't agree with it.

I don't necessarily think it should be illegal, but I feel that it should be heavily regulated and taxed.

My opinions on the subject continuously prove to be very unpopular.

That is a good point, but I would still like to see Ace telling Teddy to STFU and to "go make some tag matches or something" to seal the deal. And I still think the writers either forget these details all the time or don't care and think no one is paying attention.

Can't say I'm a fan either. I've never touched the stuff but my oldest brother was a huge pothead and turned out to be the idiot brother of the three of us so I think that influenced me (fairly or not, things influence you that way in your formative years).

But I support legalization anyway.

Lol yeah there is that too.

Really hoped they had some info but WON had nothing to say about Vince's involvement or lack thereof this Monday and Meltzer definitely mentioned the last-second rewrites plenty of times in the past few weeks. Whatever it was hope they stick with that team or give Vince the same meds again.
